Day 5 observations, a movie, and another blog

Today’s Word Count Goal: 14750

Today’s Word Count So-Far: 8811

Total Word Count Goal: 50,000

I know much more about pigeons than I ever did before. Today I caught myself stalking a fine, dark-gray specimen in circles in a gutter on Mission Street. And I’m stretching my imagination much more than I’ve asked it to stretch in years.

I’m way behind on my word-count, but I’ll make it up this weekend.

I’m finding all kinds of fascinating themes to explore about pigeons. Very few of them are kid-book friendly, but I’m not letting that stop me.

So please enjoy this very kid-friendly movie about pigeons. I feel just like Bert when he says, “Boy, just looking at these pigeons makes me feel terrific!”

And now that I’ve entertained you, please go over to my WriMo pal Eric’s blog and give him the love and encouragement he deserves. He’s been writing 50,000+ words every November since at least 2004, and lately, he’s blogging about it everyday.

 

Watch the Sexy Grammarian participate in National Novel Writing Month for the third year in a row. I’ll post word counts and worries here daily, Tweet about it, raise funds for the Office of Letters And Light, and host Meet Me/Tweet Me open loft writing sessions all month long.

    You’re so nice to link to my blog. 🙂 Hmm, I guess I should go write something in it, huh?

    I love that you are following pigeons around. I can’t think of a better thing to do if you are not writing about them, then to follow them around and maybe takes some pictures or video.

    I look forward to seeing this when it’s done.

    Love this Bert movie. I totally forgot he loves oatmeal and pigeons! Precious.
